Home Shop POWERbreathe Classic – Medium Resistance
This Classic Medium device is ideal for people who are moderately fit to very fit and suits the majority of people who are physically active.
The range between each training level is broader than that offered by the ‘light resistance’ model. This means that as your breathing muscles become stronger and you move up one of the training levels by increasing the resistance, there is a larger increase in cmH2O, making training more of a challenge.
The device offers a ‘medium resistance’ to breathing in, provided by the adjustable spring loaded valve. This ‘load’ training is similar to weightlifting, and in the instance of this ‘medium resistance’ device, provides a variable level of load setting (weight lifted) in increments of 20cmH2O, from 10cmH2O to 170cmH2O.
POWERbreathe Classic is the first breathing trainer we developed and is still as popular today as it was when it was first introduced. This manual device is designed to be simple and easy to use. With 9 manually adjustable levels over time you will be able to strengthen your inspiratory breathing muscles. Helping you to increase your stamina and overall wellness.
Our scientifically proven training regime of 30 breaths, twice a day typically takes only a few minutes and, used properly, you should start to see the benefits within just a few weeks.
Inspiratory muscle training is proven by sports scientists and medical professionals to exercise and strengthen the muscles used to breathe in.
Adjustable Load Selection Range
Please note: Heavy resistance is only for those who have reached maximum loading on a medium resistance model. If you start with a heavy resistance model, you will not experience the benefits of POWERbreathe Plus training and may struggle to acheive higher levels due to the faster progression between loads.
Precise load settings may vary due to: (1) the analogue nature of the calibrated spring tensioner and the precision with which the load is selected; (2) a small effect of inspiratory flow rate upon spring compression such that high inspiratory flow rates lead to greater spring compression, and a small increase in load.
This effect is common to all spring loaded devices, and its size is magnified by increasing spring range (it is larger in a spring with a maximum range of 90cmH2O compared with one with half this range), it is also greater at lower absolute load settings.
Keeping a record of the training level reached and the number of breaths successfully completed per session will help you analyse your progress.

Hi Barbara and thank you for your message. Would you like to send an email to [email protected] letting them know which POWERbreathe IMT device you have and how you feel after using it and they should be able to advise you. It may simply be that you’re training too hard, on a higher load than your breathing muscles are able to cope with at the moment. But it’s better if there’s a conversation and with email it can be done with more privacy for you. Hope that helps. Thank you.

I’m not sure. I feel worse after using the Powerbreathe or any breathing gadget and I don’t know why.

The benefits of training the lungs in this way is immeasurable When I informed my consultants/doctors that I had purchased one they were pleased and spoke of the benefits of using it. However, they did not offer to prescribe. There needs to be a bigger campaign to bring Powerbreathe equipment and training to the health industry. My awareness of it was only because of my involvement in the fitness industry. The benefits of training the lungs in this way is immeasurable! I have found excellent results and recommend it to anyone who has breathing difficulties or those who wish to increase their lung capacity for sport or fitness. Let’s get Powerbreathe equipment/training recognised and widely available in treatment plans for people who struggle to breathe!!

Since my last review in 2012 I have used the power breathe on a regular basis. I recently traveled to the Himalayas on a motor cycle (Royal Enfield) adventure to the worlds Highest motor able pass- Khadung-La.I had no breathing problems, it works. I still practice and teach Taekwon-Do on a regular basis.
